In my 8+ years of lessons with Paul, he was always patient and committed to helping me learn how to play piano. I learned a variety of different pieces and skills, and his methods for practicing have stuck with me to this day.
Dennis
Pavel was a great piano teacher and guided me through my learning journey. I took lessons with him for over 8 years and can now sight read, play from memory, and create new tunes on my own. I focused mainly on classical compositions, but Pavel was always willing to help me learn modern songs. He is a very kind person who emphasizes discipline when it comes to practice.

Evelyn is very sweet and encouraging and made my first lesson so much fun. After my seven year hiatus from studying piano, she quickly assessed my strengths and weaknesses and created an action plan. She assigned beautiful pieces and really crammed a lot into an hour session. Feeling very excited to continue working with her.

My daughter has been training with Antonella for years and she does wonderful with kids. She loves music and has a passion that will help her students learn music and have fun while doing it

Antonella is an AMAZING teacher. I am an older adult student, with no music theory or background. She is very patient, accommodating, and uses very useful analogies that help me visualize what to do in a way that helps me learn and remember. My own weakness is in making time to diligently practice. I look forward to each lesson, and give her my highest recommendation.
Angela
Our experience with Antonella has been wonderful. She has high standards but is also extremely patient with young students. My daughter has learned beautiful technique but more importantly, she has expanded her mind, improved her sense of discipline and commitment and learned to play piano with a feel for the music. Working with Antonella is fantastic for the student and their parent/guardian. It's a joint effort. I highly recommend Antonella

Every student is not the same. Lesson books assume that they are. So in lessons with me I make sure we aren't afraid to put the book down and just focus on what is important. You learning at your pace, and achieving the goals you want to achieve! No book can personally adjust a lesson plan to accommodate how you're feeling, the right teacher can!

Tom is a very patient teacher who is supportive yet instructive in his feedback. As a novice I have very much appreciated his ability to see what I need as we move through the lessons. As an educator with over 35 years of experience, I appreciate his ability to connect with me, the student. My lessons have improved my ability and my confidence. Thanks, Tom!

I am very thankful for the fact that I was fortunate to be one of the students of Ivan. He is a consummate master and musician! Thanks to his patience and careful attention to the process of teaching, his music lessons are joyful and easy for students. Ivan is a professional with a capital!

"As a beginner, taking lessons with Leanna has offered a structured approach to learning the fundamentals of piano, along with developing good technique, which has made the process less daunting. After only a couple of lessons, I feel more confident not only in my playing, but also in understanding elements of music theory (like reading sheet music) that I expected to be more difficult to grasp."

"My son has been taking lessons with Gabe for about 5 years. His calm encouragement has helped him flourish in his love for piano and music. The amount of theory, classical piano, and music that my son chooses has been the perfect combination to help him create what I expect to be a lifelong enjoyment of music. He has also worked for about 1 year with my 7 year old daughter and has more patience than anyone I have ever known. She has also enjoyed every one of her lessons. I would highly recommend Gabe for all ages and all learning styles."
